A Faribault Woman Throttled, Chloro
formed, and Robbed at a Leading
Chicago Hotel.
[Chicago Tribune 22.]
A bold robbery took place at the Palmer
house Monday, which has been kept quiet
thus far in the hope that the guilty party
might be arrested, but so much time has now
elapsed that the police may not be able to get
their man, and there is, therefore, no reason
why it should not be given.
There arrived at the hotel Monday morning
Mrs. Dudley, of Faribault, Minn. She is a
milliner at that place, and came to the city,
as has been her custom, to buy some goods.
After reaching here she went to Gage
Brothers and made some purchases, and then
went back to the hotel. Feeling 111, she
stepped down to Blocki's drug store, in the
hotel, to ask him to make up
a prescription for her. "While standing
there waiting for the clerk she noticed two
men who were loafing about the place. One
of them she paid particular attention to; he
was a sallow-faced fellow, With close-cropped
beard, and with peculiar eyes which seemed
to project somewhat. When the medicine
was ready she said to Mr. Bloeki that she had
no money with her, but that he could either
send it up to her room and she would pay or
she would go up aud get the cash and retnm
for the medicine. As a matter of fact she
had some with her, but lt was in her bosom,
and she did not care to take it out there. He
said that it was all right, that he knew her,
and that she need not bother about lt. So
she went to her room and presently took
a bath. She was partly dressed when
there came a knock at the
door. She opened it slightly, and
found that the visitor was the boy from the
drug store. She gave him a half dollar and
received the medicine. Then she bolted the
door and went on dressing. 'It was not "long
before another knock came, and, thinking
that it might have something to do with the
medicine, she again opened the door, stand
ing slightly to one side. As she did so the
man whom she had specially noticed in tbe
store pushed his way in and made a clutch
for her reticule, iuto which she had by this
time put the money which she had on herper
aon. Then there followed a desperate fight
for the reticule, and in the contest it was
torn. The man had Beized her by the throat,
choking her, and at the same time
forcing her back into the bedroom out
of the parlor, where the struggle
began. Finally he used some
chloroform and reduced her to insensibility,
after which he totik what he could lay his
hands on and cleared out. Mrs. Dudley was
insensible for awhile, but finally came to
herself snfficicntly to ring the bell. This
brought a boy, who, seeing that something
unusual had happened, called Mr. Howe, the
manager, who was just getting off the ele
vator. He got some camphor, and in about
a quarter of an hour she had so far recovered
her senses as to be able to give an account
of the affair.
She was positive that the man who did the
robberj- was the one she had seen in the
drug store, and gave a fair description of
him to the detectives. She is still at the
hotel, quite nervous, and not willing to see
any one, but otherwise none the worse for
her experincei
The amount taken was $400, of which
$200 was in cash and the rest a check on the
Bank of America. It is also believed that
her gold watch and chain were taken. Mrs.
Dudley cannot think what should have at
tracted the attention of this man to her, for
she is not aware that she made any display
of money. It is not her custom when she
comes to the city to make her purchases to
bring ready money with her, everything
being almost invariably in the shape of
draft. She does not think that any one
could have followed her from Faribault, and
is at a loss to know why she should have been
selected as the victim. She is a woman
past the prime of life.
The place is one where no blame can be
attached to the hotel people. There are
things that it is impossible to guard against,
and this seems to have been one of them.
They have done all in their power to make
her comfortable, and have aided as far as
they could in the steps taken for the arrest
of the robber.

Questions Asked and Fully Ansicered.
Office of the Cone Placer IfDtnra Co., )
222 Nicollet ave., Minneapolis,Feb. 16. )
Jndge H. JT. Maguire:
Knowing you have had twenty years' ex
perience in Montana and adjacent territories
as^a practical miner, and that you are espec
ially well acquainted with the mining pros
pects of Emigrant Gulch, on the Upper Yel
lowstone, (now controlled by the Cone com
pany) , you are requested to give me your
general views in regard to the prospect of
Emigrant Gulch placer mining. I am par
ticularly anxious—to satisfy inquiring in
vestors—to know why the placers of emi
grant have lain undeveloped so long; and
to have your view on the Cone company of
fering a limited amount of stock to raise
working capital. Yours truly,
George B. Hai.l,
Secretary Cone Placer Mining Co.
Clark Hocse, Minneapolis, Feb. 18.
To George B. Hall, Esq., Secretary Cone
Placer Mining Company:
Your letter of inquiry of the 10th inst. is
before me.
It is a fact that during over twenty years
of my life, or almost since my boyhood, I
have been in the mining regions. 1 am ex
perienced In all branches of mining—placer
mining particularly. I have thoroughly ex
plored all the northern mining camps—in
cluding the Coeur D'AIene district, of which
so much is now being said and written I
know all about the property aud organiza
tional policy of the Cone" Placer Mining
company, of which you are secretary. "All
Montana miners know of Emigrant Gulch,
in which the company's claims are situated—
either from having personally prospected the
ground, or from reports of men of reliability
who have protected it. It is nothing new—
your enterprise is not the birth of a recent
aud uncertain mining excitement—is notin
tended to increase railroad travel and entrap
the unwary. Emigrant Gulch has been suc
cessfully mined since ISolL I was person
ally and intimately acquainted with Jack
Cone, deceased—the original locator of the
the most developed portion of the company's
grounds—und know that he must have taken
out from his claim (which as vet is onlv
fairly opened) an aggregate at at 'least -JoO,'
000, working by primitive methods and un
der great diadvantages. When hydraulics
shull have been applied I will expect daily
cleau-ups ranging from $500 to >;•>.500 over
and above working expenses—that is,
I claim it is susceptible of mathematical
demonstration, by measuring aud testing
the gravel bodies imw o/jened, and estimating
ope rating- cost, that the minimum profit of a
daily run with hydraulics cannot fall below
$500, whUe Improving prospects are at any
time liable to swell the net return to ."'2,000
a day. I give vou this statement with full
knowledge of the fact that there are hundreds
of old Montanians settled in Minneapolis
and St. Paul, who might contradictit.il' it
were not susceptible of proof—after having
considered that investigators can now go
right to the company's grounds by two days'
and three nights'railroad travel" from this
city, and that I would be sure to be set down
either as visionary or unscrupulous through
some of the hundreds of business letters
which daily pass to and fro between -Min
neapolis aud St. Paul and the Montana
towns if the statement could be pronounced
unreasonable by those acquainted with the
Emigrant Is the only one of the old Monta
na gold fields that has not been worked over
and over again. There great bodies of
auriferous gravel have not yet been disturbed,
only, I may say, to be thoroughly prospected.
But this very fact, your letter intimates,
throws a shade of suspicion over the enter
prise—people will conclude that the Emigrant
Gulch placers, if as rich as we claim, would
not have lain undeveloped so long. This can
all be explained to the satisfaction of a reasi in
able mind—the main explanatory facts being
that before the Crow Indians were brought
into treaty relations with the general govern
ment a miner in or about Emigrant Gulch
was liable to lose his scalp; and after mak
ing a treaty with the crows, until very recent
ly, these placer mihes'were within the limits
of their reservation, wherefore miners
could not legally locate claims there. Cone
and a few others prosecuted work by suffer
ance of the Indians—were liable any mo
ment to ejection. It is unnecessary to yo
into the details of other explanations—you
having yourself visited and prospected the
ground, and having personally investigated
all relating facts, are now as well acquainted
with them as I am.
You also intimate in your letter that some
of those to whom stock is offered to raise
working capital, suspect that the enterprise is
planned to test the value of the grounds
without tbe incorporators of the company
themselves incurring financial risk. Such a
suspicion has no foundation, and is unjust.
The treasurer is a bonded officer, and the
president (president also of the Bozeman
board of trade) is a gentleman of unimpeach
able integrity. Every dollar of money paid
for stock set apart for working capital, less
necessary incidental expenses, will be ex
pended on the property; it will be deposited
in the banking house of Valentine G. Hush,
of Minneapolis, the financial agency of tbe
company, where the stock for the working
capital is now for sale, and can only be
drawn therefrom on orders signed by the
president and treasurer—who must file
vouchers for all moneys expended. There
never was a company more honestly and
fairly organized. The stock, in my judg
ment, is worth at least twice what you ask
for it. I doubt whether a mining company
was ever organized on as low a capitaliza
tion with property near as valuable as the
Cone property. The capital stock is §200,
000, divided "into 20,000 shares: and 9,000
shares are offered at 85—50 per cent, par
value, [jl Believe the dividends that will be
paid this present working season of 1S84
will aggregate $50,000, or 10 per cent, on a
capitalization of half a million ; and I be
lieve trtey will average $100,000 through
coming years, or 10 per cent, on a million.
I predict that within six months from this
date the stockholders of the Cone company
will demand a premium on par valuation,
and clamor for increased capitalization to
half a million.
The grounds of the Cone eompany form an
inclined plane, the fall being from" 75 to 100
feet to the mile, and the whole Yellowstone
river will serve as a drain-race. Tne exclu
sive right within the limits of the company's
grounds to the entire current of Emigrant
Gulch Creek has been secured; so I may say,
knowing what I do of the richness of the
gravel, that the element of uncertainty is not
in the enterprise; and I may here add that I
doubt whether there is a record of a single
failure of hydraulic gold mining wbere work
was inaugurated with the two essential con
ditions of success— water to admntayeousbj ap
ply and gold-bearing gravel. It is the surest of
all kinds of mining. In California [gee
reports of director of mint] ground has been
profitably worked by the hydraulic method
that returning less than Mif a mill to the pan.
Money was never made faster by productive
industry than in gold mining—notwithstand-
ing all we have heard of gold mining
swindles and failures —and the Cone com
pany offers the best opportunity I ever knew
for men who cannot go to the mines in per
son to become enriched in this field of en
The property could not be in a more favo—
able location. It is on the santh side'of the
Upper Yellow stone, and reached by a pleas
ant four-mile drive from a station on the Park
Branch railroad. It will be tha only point
on any of the routes of the National park
where tourists can see placer gold mining
carried on. A chain of farms—recently lo
cated, as the country has only recently been
thrown open to settlement—extends almost
the entire distance from Emigrant gulch to
Livingstone, twenty-four miles down the
river. Rich quartz veins cross Emigrant
gulch, above the company's grounds, and
capital is becoming interested in them. Un
doubtedly a thriving town will be built up in
the vicinity.and the Cone company may con
trol its site In the interest of its stockholders.
Yours resrc-tfully,
a. S. Maguirb.

prescribed by the medical profession, and
id many thousands of families, for the
past fortv years.it has been regarded as an
invaluable household remedy. It is a
preparation that onlv requires' to be taken
In verv small quantities, and a few doses
of it administered in the early stages of a
cold or cough will effect a speech* cure,
and may, very possibly, save fife. 'There
is no doubt whatever that
Ayer's Cherry Pectoral
Has preserved the lives of great numbers
of persons, by arresting the development of
Laryngitis, Bronchitis, Pneumonia,
and Pulmonary Consumption, and bv
the cure of those dangerous maladies. It
should be kept ready for use in every
family where there are children, as it is a
medicine far superior to all others in the
treatment of Croup, tbe alleviation of
and Influenza, ailments peculiarly inci
dental to childhood and youth. Prompti
tude in dealing with all diseases of this
class is of the utmost importance. The
loss of a single day may, in many cases,
entail fatal consequences. Do uot wsste
precious time in experimenting with
medicines of doubtful efficacy, whi'e the
malady Is constantly gaining a deeper
hold, but take at once the speediest and
most certain to cure,

What shall we mourn? For the prostrate tree that
sheltered the young green wood?
For the fallen cliff that fronted the sea, and
guarded the fields from the flood?
For the eagle that died in the tempest, far from
its eyrie's brood?
Nay, not for these shall we weep; for the silver
cord must be worn.
And the golden fillet shrink back at last, and the
dust 10 its earth return:
And tears are never for those who die with their
face to the duty done;
But we mourn for the fledglings left on the waste,
and the fields where tho wild waves run.
From the midst of the flock he defended, the
brave one has gone to his rest;
And the tears of the poor he befriended their
wealth of affliction attest.
From the midst of the people is stricken a sym
bol they daily saw,
Set over against the law books, of a Higher than
Human Law;
For his life was a ceaseless protest, and his voice
was a prophet's cry
To be true to the Truth and faithful, though the
world were arrayed for the Life.
From the hearing of those who hated, a threaten
ing voice has past;
But the lives of those who believed and died are
not blown like a leaf on the blast.
A sower of infinite seed was he, a woodman that
hewed to the light,
Who dared to be traitor to Union when Union was
traitor to Right!
"Fanatic!" the insect hissed, till he taught them
to understand
That the highest crime may be written in the
highest law of the land.
"Disturber" and "Dreamer" the Philistines cried
« hen he preached an ideal creed,
Till they learned that the men who have changed
the world with the world have disagreed:
That the remnant is right, when the masses are
led like sheep to the pen;
For the instinct of equity slumbers till roused by
instinctive men.
It is not enough to win rights from a king and
write them down in a book:
Kew men, new lights; and the fathers' code the
sons may never brook.
What is liberty now where license then: their
freedom our yoke would be;
And each new decade must have new men to
determine its liberty.
Mankind is a marching army, with a broadening
front the while:
Shall it crowd its bulk on the farm-paths, or clear
to the outward Hie?
Its pioneers are the dreamers who heed neither
tongue nor pen
Of the human spiders whose silk is woven from
the lives of totting men.
Come, brothers, here to the burial! But weep
not, rather rejoice,
For his fearless life and his fearless death; for
his true unequaled voice.
Like a silver trumpet sounding the note of human
For his brave heart always ready to enter the
weak ones' ti^'ht;
For \iW soul unmoved by the mob's wild shout or
the social sneer's disgrace;
For his freeborn spirit that drew no line between
class or creed or race.
Come, workers; here was a teacher, and the
lesson he taught was srood;
There are no classes or races, bnt one human
There are no cree'ds to be bated, nb color? of skin
Mankind is one In Its rishts and wrongs—one
right, cne hope, one guard.
By his lift he taught, by his death we learn the
great reformer's creed;
The right to be free, and the hope to be just, and
tht> guard against selfish greed.
And richest of all are ihe nnseen wreaths on his
coftln-lid lnid down
By the toil-stained hands of workmen—their sob,
their kiss, and their crown.

with power to act.
Li There being no further business the Board
adjourned. R. Schiffmann,
Secretary pro tern.
Incident at a Sumphony Concert.
An amusing incident occurred during the
fore part of the evening. Somebody sitting
in a conspicuous place in one of the lower
proscenium boxes was attracting the atten
tion of the public by his odd disguise as a
colored person. His headdress was like a
woman's yet he wore a beard and dark eye
goggles; his nose and ears were white, the
rest of his face black; dark gloves complet
ed his strange disguise. Some people say
this masquerading was on account of a wa
